TOWSON, Md. - Bryn Mawr's tennis team finally managed to get their spring campaign underway earlier Saturday afternoon. After several rainouts and postponements, the Owls played their first spring match on the road at Goucher today.
Bryn Mawr got out to an early lead in today's match thanks to a 2-1 effort in doubles. Siegle and Eram Haider paired up to take an 8-5 victory at first singles, while Horvatits and Sydney Kim followed suit at second doubles with a 9-7 win.
Singles play started out in a similarly successful fashion for Bryn Mawr. Siegle cruised through her match at first singles, taking a 6-1, 6-0 win. However, Goucher battled back to tie the match up with two straight wins at third and then second singles. Horvatits got into a tough battle with Goucher's Ali Gorson-Morrow, but the Owls freshman came through strong with a 6-3, 2-6, 6-2 win at fourth singles. That put Bryn Mawr just a point away from taking the match, but it just wasn't to be. Goucher won the final two matches in progress to come all the way back and claim the 5-4 win in the match.
Bryn Mawr was originally scheduled to get right back in action tomorrow with a home match against Juniata. However, that match has been scrapped due to impending wet weather in the area once again. That pushes the Owls' first home match of the spring to Wednesday, the 26th, when Bryn Mawr welcomes Washington College to campus. That match is slated to start at 4:00 PM on the Bryn Mawr tennis courts.
